81% of DuPont investors at annual meeting oppose corporation’s policies on plastic pollution

Some 81% of shareholders voted for a report that would disclose how much plastic the company releases into the environment each year and assess the effectiveness of DuPont’s pollution policies, according to a regulatory filing. DuPont’s management had advised investors to reject the proposal.

The level of support was the highest on record for an environmental resolution opposed by management, according to the Sustainable Investments Institute.

“This vote confirms a tidal wave of support by investors to confront a deadly contributor to the global plastic pollution crisis,” said Conrad MacKerron, senior vice president at nonprofit shareholder advocate As You Sow, which filed the proposal.

Bravo! RTFA – and pushing the backwards DuPont management even further, 84% of the investors voted against management failure on increasing diversity in employment.
